Book (mini) Review - Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life
This review is coming to you after the second time reading of Hush Hush as I wanted my memory fresh for Crescendo but my feelings have not changed I loved it as much as the first time and if not it was much sweeter.
Becca writes a smooth and addictive novel that leaves the hands restless and the heart aching for more, her characters are compelling leaving much to the imagination. The main character Nora can be a little a tad annoying but this I like about her it suits her character and as she grows in the book you see why shes the way she is and she warms on you....Patch was a little more of a mystery to me I had this love hate relationship with him and when I hated him I hated him bad and when I loved him I was besotted.
What does it for me more then the characters is the story line....one that starts of a little dull but captivating changes into a can't put you down, need to consume every word read. The journey Nora is taken on is addictive and your left with a need for more to know more of everything and to know more of who and what Patch is!!
I definitely recommend this read for EVERYONE who has not read it all ready as I have a feeling that Crescendo will be hot hot hott!
Happy Tuesday xx
